You can volunteer on our Rainforest Conservation in Madagascar; this is a unique chance to live and work on the world's fourth largest island, which split from India nearly 90 million years ago.

 

Madagascar boasts one of the highest percentages of endemic species on the planet - over 90% of its animal species are found nowhere else in the world! The island is under threat from the 22 million people who live there, many of whom subsistence farm; it is estimated that 90% of Madagascar's forest has been lost.

Volunteers on this programme will have the opportunity to work alongside some rare and interesting species through biodiversity studies and environmental impact studies. We are working with a local national park which does not have sufficient resources to maintain the park efficiently or to carry out their own reports.

The project is based in Andasibe, one of the biodiversity hotspots of the eastern Madagascar rainforest corridor. Through our volunteers' initiatives we are also aiming to make Andasibe a "greener" village.

 

We also have a Rainforest Conservation Project in the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest!
